David Luiz could leave Chelsea because of the club’s decision to only give one-year extensions to players over 30.
The Telegraph claims the 31-year-old’s future is “in doubt” due to the Blues being reluctant to change their current contract policy.
Luiz is reportedly keen to remain a Chelsea player but he is aware that a longer deal could come his way elsewhere.
Foreign clubs are expected to make bids for the Brazil international in January, with the centre-back still at an age where he can thrive for several years.
Any bids next month are likely to be regarding a summer transfer, rather than Luiz moving on straight away.
Asked about the current situation, Luiz said:
We are still talking, let’s see. Let’s see what the future brings.
The Brazilian was excellent in Saturday’s thrilling 2-0 win over champions Manchester City.
